If you're not happy before you're successful, you're going to be miserable when you do become successful.

About Sinbad's Height

Comedians for some reason are considered to be a short breed. Why? Perhaps because short people look funnier than the taller ones?

Well, Sinbad isn't short, on the opposite, he is tall. He once mentioned his height as 6 feet 5 inches.

We know Sinbad is tall but we suspect he is not this tall. He was only a bit taller than Arnold Schwarzenegger (6'1") Jingle All The Way. A few more height comparisons like with TK Carter (6'1"), have made us convinced that Sinbad's height was closer to 6'4" not 6'5" in his prime.

But Sinbad is not in his prime anymore. Now close to his 70s, Sinbad has lost significant height. He states his knee replacement surgery as the reason.

The height of Sinbad in his prime was

6 ft 3½ in (192 cm)

His present height is

6 ft 2 in (188 cm)

Who the heck is Donald Trump to fire me? I regret I didn't tell Donald Trump, 'You need to fire your barber. I'm sorry. I ain't feeling you, man. You're fired! I fire you, Donald Trump.'
